A tough test of our credentials

Tony Mowbray knows tonight's match against Scunthorpe United will be a big challenge for the players.

Rovers make the journey to Lincolnshire in fine form off the back of three consecutive victories, but come up against an Irons side that haven't been beaten in their opening five league games.

The manager feels Graham Alexander's side will provide a another stern test, but if they can approach the match in the same manner as the recent victory over Bradford City, then they can come away with the same result.

"Tuesday night, like Bradford away the other week, will be a really tough test of our credentials," said the Rovers boss.

"It is a game that does concern me, I think they are very well organised, they have got lots of physicality, they are very good at set-plays and they've got a goal threat. So I think it is a difficult match for us.

"Yet it is one that with all of those things said, our team have to react to it. The players will feel my concerns and then they need to go and show they can handle what is in front of them and go and get the job done.

"So it is a test for us, we have to be ready."
